Is 2-seat mobility scooter allowed on pavement?
Hello everyone, I wish to ask you all a question today, since I lack knowledge on this on my own and can't seem to find it in the internet. Basically mom of my friend had a stroke few years back and she can't really move on her own. My friend Mark wants to do something about it, like take her out for a drive outdoors on daily basis.
As far as I know there are mobility scooters with 2 seats, similar to this one: https://velobike.co.uk/en/shop/3-wheel-scooters/zt18
From what I understand they can ride legaly on road, in UK with speed of 8 mph at most, but does anyone know if such a vehicle would be able to ride on pavement in UK at all? As far as I know the legal speed on pavement is 4 mph for mobility scooters but are 2 seaters like this allowed at all on pavement or are they excluded due to carrying 2 people?
If anyone can answer me this, I would be really thankfull
